Austin Speed Shop's 1932 Ford Hill Country Flyer Roadster



The May edition of the California Car Cover catalog featured a custom 1932 Ford Roadster built by the team at Austin Speed Shop.  The '32 Ford was brought out to Southern California this winter to complete for the title of America's Most Beautiful Roadster at the prestigious Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, Ca. Though it did not win the award, the Hill Country Flyer got a lot of attention thanks to its incredible details and beautiful paint work. Thank you to photographer Tim Sutton for supplying some great photos of this vehicle.


Gary Howard applied the custom mixed "sunrise cinnamon" paint that really shines when out in the sun.
1950 Pontiac taillights were installed in the rear of the '32.


The Hill Country Flyer features Rocket Racing wheels with custom fitted Veda Caps.


Under the hood of the roadster is a 1957 Chrysler Hemi 392 engine built by Billy Cockrell.




The interior of the Hill Country Flyer was designed by E.Black Designs and built by Cato's Custom Upholstery. It features custom made seats and a Johnsons Hot Rod Shop steering wheel. The dashboard was custom built by Austin Speed Shop using a 1946 Chrysler gauge cluster.

Austin Speed Shop outfitted the roadster with a custom nerf bar.


Of course, we had to show off just one photo of the roadster covered in a custom California Car Cover. Glad we could help keep the Hill Country Flyer clean with one of our Plushweave car covers until it was ready to be unveiled at the Grand National Roadster Show.
